forget about culture within a firm, and culture is important not just at an u.s. attorney's office, not just in government, not just in congress, not just at any school or institution it's important. at a business organization and in particular at financial institutions it i'm shocked and amazed at how few people think about that. you have a conference named delivering alpha, but i wonder in my conversations with people, not sitting and reviewing indictments, that they're not spending enough time thinking about the kinds of people they're hiring, the culture they're creating in their firm -- the thing that happens to me a lot, and we talked about this, is in many police stations, not just in the business community but in too many institutions, but we're here to talk about the business community i think, of people wanting to come as close to the line as possible. and they think my job, and the job my corporate council should be is to tell me how close to the line i can get to maximize my profit without going over the line. the problem with that is is it is a dangerous game to play.
of incarceration that's attached to a misdemeanor conviction. so i think that's threatened us, if you're really looking for hammers and nails, why not just have a threat of a misdemeanor, period, of incarceration. the other thing i would say is that the respect trend has actually has been to implement shorter periods of flash incarceration so you actually provide an immediate sanction to address a particular problem which has had -- based on the research i've seen, greater success in changing behaviors because it's more of a cognitive behavior model and like a reward-punishment immediate system, whereas just putting people in state prison and browsing he -- warehousing them for extended periods of time where we all know going to prison doesn't mean you have access to illegal nhra catics, that doesn't seem either to necessarily be a solution. -- illegal narcotics that that doesn't seem either to be necessarily a solution. >> i promised to marty we'd be careful to give him equal time here. >> that's all right. that's all right. i already feel the glow of san francisco's progressive approach to th
a different result. this is fairly complicated stuff for all of us. can you take a moment and unpacked what you believe happened with this transit data? >> the coalition relied on the help of a traffic engineer, a well-respected, longtime traffic engineer who has represented numerous municipalities. he did a survey, which is in a follow-up letter that we submitted with the appeal. he checked with all of his colleagues to check and see how you actually use the peak hours factor. what typically happens is it is a software program where you put in a number and run everything to make sure you get the same outcome. hear, the typical number that agencies put in, let me just make sure, is typically around .95. we will use this for the basis of the argument. what happened here was the city ratcheted up and put .98. at that point, there is a lot more increment in the flow. the more traffic you put in an intersection, it smoothes out the flow indicative to its logical conclusions. the more traffic, the less feel -- the less failing intersections that you have. that makes no sense. the only way to imp

.. so the u.s. was unaware when of these payments one. senior officials at hsbc headquarters at blonden from 2001 to 2007 new that affiliate's in england and the middle east, the h. b. m e were sending undisclosed payments through their accounts but didn't stop them or in a forum where them of the extent of the activity so they knew that there affiliate's were hiding key information from each other. at hbus they were on notice as early as 2001 that the stripping was occurring and took no decisive action to stop the war. they stopped occasional wire transfers from iran but the words, quote, do not use our name in new york. so, first one mr. bagley, the european and middle east affiliate's, why wasn't hbus told? what possible justification is there for not telling an affiliate that the key information so they can comply with their own law to be removed >> it's a very good question, senator. my understanding of the position was that hbu was checking each one of those transactions to ensure that they were compliant and i was always advise to that they were compliant. when i first
